walk it down, talk it down, sympathy, luxury.

2634 new words on A Reckoning of Men. I consider that a very good writing day.

I would really, really like to be done now. But there are only about a hundred pages to go, which is kind of thrilling. Thrilling in an "I need a nap" kind of way.

Also, I'm halfway done with "Confessor," and I think I'm actually going to let it sit for a bit and come back to it when I have an idea of what the ending will be. In a best case scenario, I'm only four hard writing days from the end of it, and I need to start ramping up the tension, and I don't know yet what mechanisms I will use to do that.

So, much as it frustrates me, the smart money lets it cook for a bit.

Of course, I might get home from climbing tonight and be full of inspiration. You never know.


*g* Sorry we didn't manage to meet up in NYC the other week...
I'm always impressed with your productivity. A 2,000 word day is very rare for me. More like 500 words is more typical.
Alas, if I wrote 500 words a day, I would have to move in with my mother.

And I probably couldn't afford the rest she would change me....
In light of the sentence revisions you've been posting, I think 2.6k words a very good writing day is entirely justified.

I wrote around 2k this morning, but that was produced via brain-to-page dump, mostly reusing well-worn verbiage, instead of a iterative search for le mot juste.

Ah well. Something to aspire to, I guess.
